Building on a tradition of academic excellence and success for every student, we cultivate passionate learners and informed global citizens who actively influence their world.
Academic Excellence - Maximizes personal potential and inspires collective achievement, so mastering curricular content is only the starting line and learning is tailored to needs, strengths and interests.
Success for Every Student - Is measured in a variety of ways. Our view of success reaches beyond academic performance and encompasses resilience, flexibility, tenacity, curiosity, creativity, empathy, determination and athletic and artistic expression.
Passionate Learners - Take full advantage of learning opportunities. They assume responsibility for their own learning, have courage to explore and take the initiative to discover their interests. They are self-motivated, demonstrate confidence, collaborate freely and share their discoveries.
Global Citizens - Engage in active inquiry to acquire knowledge that reflects the depth and breadth of the collective human experience. They influence their world by making positive, proactive choices about what to do with what they know to collaboratively effect change."
Paul Nitze wisely observed, “One of the most dangerous forms of human error is forgetting what one is trying to achieve.” The local global citizens who, in collaboration, sent JPI back to Texas, never forgot what they were trying to achieve – Stopping the Jefferson. They rose to the challenge at a time when, as Nitze said with respect to his involvement with the events of his era - an important thing needed to be done.
